Yahoo stock quote downloads - US stocks

Until yesterday afternoon (11/1/17) I was able to download stock quotes to Excel. Now I get "Run-time error '1004: Application-defined or object-defined error".

 

I am not  programmer - please help.

After many years, I am having the same problem downloading quotes using the "http://finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=AZPN+AGG+AGO+ . . . . " command. Is something broken permanently or is a fix underway?

That absoluteley sucks. I depend on the quotes to manage my portfolio.

Looks like Yahoo - API for fetching stock quotes is not working as of ~ 16:00 November 01, 2017.

Don't know what Yahoo changed. Hope they allow the API to work again soon.

 

Yahoo -- Please publish who we can get the stock quotes for personnal use.

I wonder if you realise how many people you are affecting here. I too have been using this download to manage my portfolio for years. I'd be happy to pay for it if necessary. I'm not aware of any alternative.

I don't understand why Yahoo would turn off such a valuable service.  I certainly never meant to violate the Terms of Service.  I feel like a criminal.
